    Ugh I just bought a whole bunch (that I haven't opened and used) on Sunday and now it's on sale! Hope UNIQLO are nice enough to credit the difference when I ask them tomorrow …

      this has been on sale for weeks, did you buy it in store?

      •  

        Maybe I bought the styles that aren't on sale. Will have to check when I get home today

      •  

        I double checked my order from 20/06 bought online with Uniqlo and it has at least been $9.90 since then.

          I don't buy men's T-shirts…

          I did get a long sleeve T-shirt that was on sale ($10 off) but yeah I'm gonna have to check what I bought when I get home

      •  

        Definitely was not on sale last night!
        408108 was $14.90 last night >=[

        Going in for the refund and repurchase.

          Yeah the women's scoop neck one as per the OP definitely wasn't on sale on Sunday, but it is now.

          Wish me luck as I attempt to claw back $10 from UNIQLO …

      Buy a second pair at the discounted price then return the second pair with your original receipt and say "sorry, not what I was after".

        I was just gonna bring in the original items; they're still unworn, in unopened packaging and a UNIQLO shopping bag

    •  

      OK so UNIQLO gave the difference but because I used a $5 coupon, I could only get $5 back rather than the $10 I was hoping for, even though had I bought the items today rather than back on Sunday, I would have saved $10.

      Their returns process is EXCRUCIATING; five sales assistants and only one of them can process refunds. They should be more like Myer and David Jones where any sales assistant can process refunds …

    These are great. I wore some underneath when I walked Cradle Mountain in TAS last May while it was hella cold with driving rain, and found them to be super comfy and warm. Staying nice & toasty made the experience very enjoyable.

  •  

    Are the heattech grey v neck short sleeve t shirts on sale?

  •  

    Who else wears these as normal T-Shirts?

    •  

      I have a female Heattech from a few seasons ago. It is quite shear and a little see through, so I don't wear it as a tshirt, but you could. I think the newer ones are slightly less see-through though if that's an issue for you.

      Haha, that's what I said 10 minutes ago. But I suppose some people are happy to buy overpriced garbage "on sale" so who are we to speak out?

    •  

      Just so I understand, why are you guys saying they aren't worth it? Seems like they're keeping people warm. Is it because those materials are cheap to manufacture with? Even then, if people are saying they are comfortable and warm, why shouldn't they buy them? Genuinely curious

        Just so I understand, why are you guys saying they aren't worth it?

        The product is made up of rayon, polyester, acrylic, and spandex. These synthetic materials are cheap to the boot (you'd get a kilo for under $5 without bargaining or buying in bulk quantities) off China. I'd imageine large textile manufacturers buy it for less than 1/3rd that price (a very conservative estimate).

        Seems like they're keeping people warm.

        As opposed to what? If these kept you warm, I bet that a cotton t-shirt will keep you warmer. There's no lambswool, merino wool, cashmere, alpaca wool, down, or even feathers. Absolutely nothing good in it to keep you warm. They're selling hot stinking marketing BS in the name of "heat tech" IMO. But hey, caveat emptor. :-)

        I haven't even negged the deal, but see how some of my posts are voted negative? It's probably from some of those people who purchased this and are now repenting it because I brought them the bad news.

          Can you get cashmere or any of the other materials you listed for $10?

            @TripleCheesePizza:

            Can you get cashmere or any of the other materials you listed for $10?

            I did not say that.

            I was only remarking on how this cheap product is being marketed as "heat tech" to unsuspecting buyers. The notion that this cheap tshirt has anything to do with heat retention is arrant nonsense, and plain old marketing BS.

            On a related note, they do have their lambswool, merino, and cashmere sweaters on sale. For a higher price, obviously, and those are strangely not "heat tech". Probably because someone looking for a merino wool sweater will already know what they're buying, and will see "heat tech" as the BS that it is.

              Heattech refers to the specific materials, hence why their other products are not heattech.

          i love how you complain about heattech and its "cheap" ingredient. And believe only lambswool, merino wool and other ingredient will keep you warm.

          So lemme educate you since you obviously have no idea how heattech works.
          Rayon has tendency to absorb moisture readily.
          Acrylic is very thin material that is 1/10 of width of hair, which allows the stitching to be as fine as possible.
          Hence, heattech works by rayon absorbs the moisture from body and acrylic reduces heat loss due to how fine they are.
          Our body temperature heat this "trapped" moisture, creating insulation.
          Spandex is also added so it can expand, making sure it covers the body without gap, again preventing heat loss.

            You do understand "heattech" is a term they made up, yes? But you're trying to explaining as if it's a scientific law; funny that. If it works for you, that's great, and I said nothing about that.

            You might also be interested in knowing the dangers of these synthetic products. Or may be not. May be you'd not be interested in knowing acrylic strands break down and releases hundreds of thousands of non-bio-degradable strands into the waterways, land, or even eventually into our food. Or that Rayon could release toxic dioxides when accidentally bleached. Or that polyester breaks down and pollutes our waterways like acrylic, and takes dozens of decades to degrade.

            Nah, I suppose they say it's heat tech and it's only $10, so it's all good.

              @aussieolfaction: heattech is term they made up because they are the one that developed technology? What are you trying to prove there?
              With ur logic, since Microsoft made up term called Windows, Windows is just fake marketing bs?

                  @aussieolfaction: Your argument was that heattech is simple term they made up. Heattech is simply brand given by Uniqlo to that clothing brand, not the scientific term. I explained how heattech clothing works with its ingredient using science, yet you think it's not true right?

                  Sorry, but i won't deal with this level of denial lol.

                    @h1de: Sorry, I didn't mean to discount your argument completely, and would agree that some synthetic fibers do have specific properties that may be seen as useful. Having said that, I will not believe in everything uniqlo says, about it word by word.

                    Synthetic fibers offer far less bang for the buck (don't just look at the $10 buy it now offer) - think about comparative efficacy (it's not as "heat tech" as a woolen tshirt of the same size).

                    Longevity - I am typing this as I wear a nearly 10 years old merino wool sweater that basically looks and feels brand new. It owes me nothing, but has many more years of life left in it without a doubt.

                    Think about safety - synthetic fibers will melt if ignited, and the resulting hot, sticky goo will basically stick to your skin and will give severe burns. Wool on the other hand is comparatively flame retardant, and will self-extinguish given the right conditions (no such case for synthetics). Some synthetic compounds are capable of releasing toxic (to human) compounds if accidentally bleached. This toxicity may be cumulative, depending on the synthetic compound.

                    Environment - the manufacturing of these compounds pollute the environment heavily, but it doesn't stop there. The manufactured textiles will break down into hundreds of thousands of tiny strands that will make their way into our waterways, land, and food.

                    I could go on. I'm no saint, but if I could avoid all this by spending another $50, I gladly will.

                      @aussieolfaction: yeah i actually quite agree on environmental factor, but i'm not that conscious about environment i guess.
                      However, i choose heattech because i prefer having it as layer below and have more fashionable clothing on top. Heattech seems cheaper and i also get itch from wools.

                      I guess priority for each person is different.

                      Heat tech provides massive difference at least for me with how thin and comfortable it is. It is also dirt cheap, which is plus for me. I just advise against calling something marketing bs when they actually work tbh.

                  @aussieolfaction: Analogy makes perfect sense, you're just being a shit-stirrer. Give it up.

            •  

              @aussieolfaction: It works for people who have tried them e.g. myself.
              A cotton t-shirt is inferior to heattech as a warm vest - I have extensive experience wearing both. So would be one made of silk, full grain leather or diamonds.
              Merino wool has pros and cons in comparison.

          Oh you're so right I can just buy my own rayon polyester acrylic and spandex and save a bunch of money by making these at home!

        They keep you warmer than a cotton tee that's for sure. Original commenter clearly never tried one on or been advised on what to wear hiking or doing snow sports. Cotton as base layer is not the best.
        Extra warm and normal heattech tops were definitely too hot to wear inside an office from experience.

        •  

          I am always cold so wear normal heattech everyday to work. Cotton vests are all round inferior.

    For those who haven't bought the HEATTECH line before: these are just the regular HEATTECH shirts, so they're not super warm when used on their own. Best used when layering. What I like the most is the feel of the fabric, these feel better on my skin than the Supima Cotton line, for example.

    At nighttime during winter, I usually wear a HEATTECH short-sleeve shirt, plus a HEATTECH Extra Warm long-sleeve shirt on top of that. Add more layers as needed.

    I can recommend their Supima line of shirts. I wear them as a base layer when I go cycling in winter.

    Thanks OP, been waiting for these to go on special. Bought a few last year and still in great condition. Grabbed a few more for myself and the mrs.

    I do like them, the long sleeved ones especially are good for 12-15'c temperatures as a base layer. Anything lower, I have to get out the extra warms or ultra warms. Pretty durable, much better than Kathmandu ones IMO.

    Darn free shipping only for $60 above. Can't justify buying that many heat tech shirts
